    I am in the process of making my 4th quilt. It's going to be a bagello. I noticed when I ironed the 4th row, that a few of my blocks are off just a smidge. You don't notice them from just looking at it, but, close up, I can see them. They are not off very drastically, and I am going to be tying this quilt. I was going to rip it all out, and my husband says "no one is perfect and no quilt is perfect". He also said that it is being made with love and following through and finishing is better then tossing it in a corner

    EagarBeez,

    Yes, you are too hard on yourself! Time was, I would match thread to thread. That was a looooong time ago.

    Finished is better than not finished.

    Listen to your husband.

    Life isn't perfect so you quilt shouldn't be either.

    Finish it off. And enjoy it.

    No matter what you name your quilt, the one name everyone
    absolutely loves is "FINISHED".

    I am going to put a little different twist from you other responders. First I do believe that we can be too hard on ourselves. But I have done bargello and I didn't like it when it didn't line up as that is what makes that pattern unique. In this case it was a jacket I made and I know myself to know that if it didn't line up, I would never wear it or if I did I would be apologizing about my errors. If you aren't giving it away and you can live with it, then go for it. I personally feel you will be happier if it lines up. Just my opinion.
